I am a visual artist who will contribute paintings in oils for the exhibition. The works are on the theme of the emotional human condition. My heritage is Macedonian, and I use my country’s icons, such as churches, streets and historical monuments. These images relate to the past, present and future understanding of my place in the world. I use poetry as text with the images to convey universal feelings such as repression, sadness, hope, happiness, regret and beauty. Ultimately I am conveying a sense of my journey through life.
